The Army requested a decision regarding three former civilian temporary employees' entitlement to severance pay. GAO held that the Army: (1) appointed the employees from permanent positions to the full-time temporary positions without a break in service; and (2) due to funding constraints, involuntarily separated the temporary employees, who had served for a continuous period of at least 12 months. Accordingly, the former employees were entitled to severance pay.
